The company policy is, so far as is reasonably practicable to:

  • Ensure that sufficient resources (e.g. people, time, money and facilities) are made available to ensure adequate control of the health and safety risks arising from our work activities.
  • Ensure consultation with our employees on matters affecting their health and safety.
  • Ensure the provision and maintenance of safe vehicles, plant and work equipment (WE).
  • Ensure safe handling and use of substances.
  • Ensure all employees are competent to do their tasks and to give them adequate information, instruction, supervision and training.
  • Ensure duties that are required to implement the policy are given to competent employees.
  • Ensure the prevention of accidents and cases of work-related ill health.
  • Ensure maintenance of safe and healthy working conditions.
  • Ensure access to competent health and safety advice.
  • Ensure review and revision of this policy as necessary and at least every year.

It is the company’s firm belief that, by having a sound attitude to health and safety requirements, not only will the well-being of the employees be assured, but also the company will be ultimately more efficient and thus more profitable.
